New Delhi: Karan Johar’s masala entertainer ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani’ is earning praises from all corners. The audience and critics are praising the typical Bollywood film for its storyline and grandeur, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s on-screen chemistry and the stellar performances by the star cast including veteran actors. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is the latest person to hail Karan Johar’s directorial venture after watching it.
Anurag Kashyap, who watched ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahani’ in theatres, took to his social media handle to pen a heartfelt note, praising Karan Johar’s romance-saga. He wrote, “Best @karanjohar film by far . He never leaves his world but he also does not hold back any punches . Also it’s the second KJo film that I bought the tickets for 🙈that too twice , and sending everyone that trusts me to go see . Some super writing , a top of form @ranveersingh , ever so brilliant @aliaabhatt and their sparkling chemistry . After a long time I loved the dialogue writing in mainstream Hindi film where people talk like they talk . Kudos to @_ishita_moitra_ and @gogoroy”
The filmmaker went on to mention veteran actors Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi’s sequence as his favourite part from the film. He wrote, “My favourite part of the film is the incredible unrequited love story of @aapkadharam and @azmishabana18 and the patriarchal villainy of the matriarch @jayabachchn . Also not to forget @totaroychoudhury and @utterlychurni , @bashiraamir and the mother sister duo of Ranveer.. ( apologies for not knowing who they’re ) The use of old classic songs and the trolling of @somenmishra with “meri pyaari bindu” .. uff that gave me so much personal joy 😂.”
Anurag went on to praise Karan Johar’s directorial finesse as he continued, “Jokes apart – the way karan addresses all kinds of snobbery , all kinds of shame and phobias that come from our conditioning , the way he addresses our conditioning with all the humour and aplomb and joharisms.. was totally sucked in his world .. the high point of the film for me was @totaroychoudhury and @ranveersingh dancing to “Dola re Dola re”. And the whole monologue of Ranveer on how we cancel each other all the time or Alia’s rant post the Durga Pujo scene .. and @baidnitin .. you actually cut the songs halfway( or did karan shoot them only the amount that was required) .. that was also a first in a KJO film.”
“Thoroughly entertained and laughed and cried and believe it or not .. saw it twice .. the mainstream Hindi film I’ve been missing for so long .. ❤️ the real @karanjohar that I know has fully put himself out there,” he concluded.
Karan Johar, overwhelmed by Anurag’s review of the film, took to the comments section of the post and expressed gratitude for the kind words. He wrote, “Anurag!!!! Thank you thank you so much!!!!! This is so heartening to read …. I am so touched 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡”
Filmmaker Zoya Akhtar also commented on Anurag’s post with, “It’s too much fun 😊💃”
